Tr a nsparent MAXIMUM TRANSPARENCY MADE TO ORDER Spans of up to 2,400 mm and system heights of up to 1,300 mm allow maximum transparency and dimensioning with tested safety. Enjoy Flexibility, Even With Glass. In contrast to prefabricated glass construction modules, you can obtain the glass from GLASSLINE or from a supplier of your choice. Printed or colored PVB film is excellent for creatively designing the balusters. To put it simply, BALARDO offers you matchless freedom. ≤ 2.400 mm ≤ 1.300 mm

Safe and secure TESTED SAFETY FROM THE OUTSET With checked certificates (test certificates) and technical approvals, BALARDO offers absolute safety and security. No more incalculable time and cost factors for inspections, component tests or building code conditions. Balardo reduces the project period to a minimum. The dynamic structural behaviour for continuous use suitability is tested by means of extensive standardised test series performed by the accredited test laboratory LGA (Landesgewerbeanstalt Bayern). The BALARDO system is structurally calculated. The checked type structural calculations examine / analyse all system components, applications and load cases in accordance with the current standards and technical regulations. BALARDO is VDE tested for ball throwing safety in accordance with DIN 18032 Part 3 and can be used without restriction for all uses, including sports halls.

FLEXIBLE FREEDOM TO MEET EVERY NEED BALARDO is persuasive with its numerous possibilities for usage; in flat areas or on stairs, in buildings or outside, in public and private construction projects. It can be even be used easily with variable flooring installations up to 180 mm, although the support profile will have to be welded or screwed to the connection to the structure.

BALARDO offers you the correct building connection for almost any construction situation:

ECONOMIC AL I N T E L L I G E N T LY C O N S T R U C T E D – Q U I C K LY I N S TA L L E D BALARDO is very efficient. The fast and simple installation significantly reduces the planning and realization phases. BALARDO is a modular system – a great deal of value has been placed on efficiency during installation. Fast and simple installation Flexible offsetting Glass plates can be replaced from above – without disassembling the support construction No drilling or grouting of the glass plates necessary

less Installation and Planning Time Another plus: Laminated safety glass (LSG) made from float glass provides a huge measure of safety while remaining incredibly economical.

The Installation Principle Is Easy As Can Be Attach the support profile to the connection elements using screws or welding Insert the support clamping system into the support profile Insert glass panes from above, without drilling, and clamp them in place with wedges – finished The dimensions of the glass plates are not dependent to the length of the support profile and

can extend beyond the jointing area

– T HE SYS T EM The basic element of BALARDO is the support profile with its support clamping system made from high quality galvanized steel. The glass plates are inserted in the support profiles with their specially developed clamping shoe and then securely fixed into place with wedges.
